of it followed bill clinton's 1993 tax increase. now, mitt romney has just spent two years telling us that tax cuts are all you need to stimulate the economy. is that wrong? >> absolutely wrong. supply side economics is bunk. we have seen historically not only when bill clinton raised taxes the economy did very well. george w. bush in 2001, 2003, cut taxes and the economy did very badly and then ultimately went really over a cliff in 2008. or more evidence for the first three decades after the second world war in the united states, the top tax rate never fell below 70% under dwight d. eisenhower, president eisenhower -- >> and yet professor, we have heard paul ryan, the so-called budget policy wonk of the house, repeatedly tell us that what we need to do is cut taxes and the economy does great. >> well, that's just simply not true. we had an election. most of the americans obviously did not believe that nonsense, and it is absolutely nonsense. there's no correlation at all between tax rates on the very top and the economy doing worse or for that matter doing much better. but here we have a hug
it was under bill clinton where he taught 22 million jobs created we had a higher tax rate. i don't think this idea that higher tax rates stopped economic growth. what stopped economic growth is the parties making a difference. we have to come to an agreement and accept the fact that president obama won the election which included the tax increases for the wealthiest americans. >> tell me what you think is fair if we do compromise and taxes are raised he ran on staying howls holds have been make that go money and above will see taxes go up. is that fair? >> no. that is a level that has to move. they are bringing other revenue sources to the table including capping deductions and closing loopholes. that number the president is digging its heels on are where the margin matters and it will effect the job market. the white house will have to give on that point. >> we don't want to see taxes go up for everyone. that tax rate we may see a compromise. with deductions and closing loopholes. >> what do you think we can expect? >> both are agreeing on the same point. we are going to expect somethin
someone even as high ranking, frankly, as former president bill clinton to go and be the negotiator. i know he'd hate me for saying that, but we need a person of enormous prestige and influence to have these parties sit down together as an honest broker, but we have a lot of work to do to regain some credibility because we're crumbling all over the middle east. >>> any moment now president obama is set to touch down in cambodia, the second of two asian nations that no sitting u.s. president has visited before. first myanmar, a country rapid by transitioning from years of brutal military rule. president obama met with government officials as well as opposition leader aung san suu kyi who spent decades under house arrest and subsequent election to parliament. myanmar, also known as burma, has sweeping change to renewed focus on tackling poverty and political oppression. speaking in thailand president obama brushed off criticism that his trip may have been premature. >> this is not an endorsement of the burmese government, this is an acknowledgment that there's a process underway inside t
there was a president's endorsement and bill clinton include add twin kwee in a time capsule. and it was put through a test. now the twinkie needs someone to come to its rescue or we'll have to say good-bye to the twinkie for good. >> well, when it comes to comedy, there are a few boundaries for "saturday night live," especially when it comes to mocking the media. this week they took aim at our own wolf blitzer. >> joining us now is the mayer of tampa, also known as derek "fat deuce" derek. >> what's up, homey? where you at? >> i'm in the situation room. >> straight up. >> all right, yeah. mr. mayor, what can you tell us about yokely seen here walking up and down the stairs repeatedly. >> jill kelley? >> mm-hmm. >> oh, she's fun. she's like a fun one. tampa all fun. tampa got everything. see gars, jill kelley, tap shoes, loose murderers. and jill kelley got a dress too. she's fine. >> and this is the same jill kelley seen here in a cnn drama tieization. >> oh, that's funny. we'll be right back. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ we're lucky, it's not every day you find a companion as loyal as a subaru. love. it's
and working hard for -- and playing by the rules as bill clinton liked to say, if you can't speak to both of those, you're not going to be able to be a winner or have a governing majority that is stable in this country. it's not possible. >> howard, the great swing voters, reagan democrats, more conservative, many catholics, but just middle of the road people, i'm not sure they're all capitalists and tie coopycoonst. they're general pie peoplely people that go to work and come off the shift. >> there's two levels. one is that not everybody cares about entrepreneurialism and the abstract theories of joseph, et cetera. and the other part of it is cultural. people want to be left alone to live their lives in relative security with values that they appreciate. and mitt romney, who thought the whole campaign was just about the unemployment rate even failed at that because he didn't connect up the entrepreneurial spirit with how it might help the lives of those work a day people. that's something ron 23458d nald reagan and jack kemp at least figured out how to sell a generation ago. >> i guess
and tell them you're dead here, you're finished. it's almost macabre. >> we have talked about bill clinton as a super surrogate for barack obama. mike, the guy in that ad, he's a super anti-surrogate, an anti-validator of mitt romney. he looks like the voter that barack obama needed to change sides, that former reagan democrat, that white working class guy looking dead into the camera and saying, this guy destroyed us. he took away our livelihood and he made us build the stage that we had to stand on to announce the end of our jobs. it was absolutely the most devastating ad, but what was also remarkable was the romney people had no response. look, they had a six-month lead time on this line of attack because remember something called winning our future pac? they ran a 27 minute ad of this same message. romney, because he survived in florida after that, he seemed to think i can get over this because he didn't respond. >> i talked to -- >> jane mayer, you write in your piece that sarah palin of all people thought that the bain ad had a negative impact on mitt romney's candidacy. she thinks i
. >> in 1997 after bill clinton got re-elected but before lewinsky, the republicans tried to do the same thing on chinese fund-raising. remember that? they spent the better part of a year trying to turn this into a huge scandal. there is a little more to that one than there is to this. this is just exploiting a tragedy for political purposes. >> and here is the great irony. john mccain, who seems like he's the big whistle-blower, going after susan rice yesterday. compare what he said about susan rice yesterday with what he said about another foreign policy expert, in this case condoleezza rice, back in 2005. here is mccain on susan rice. take a listen. >> susan rice should have known better, and if she didn't know better, she's not qualified. she should have known better. i will do everything in my power to block her from being the united states secretary of state. >> okay. mortal sin, deal breaker, end of her career because john mccain said she had gotten the wrong brief and delivered the wrong brief. however, mccain had a very different reaction back in 2005 when condoleezza rice was nominat
government of bill clinton being replaced. no. it's also something that domestic constituencies drive u.s. presidents to participate in. but it doesn't just come from that. i mean, it really comes from a deep u.s. involvement from the start in the creation of israel. a deep concern about wanting to help israel secure itself. but also bring about peace in the middle east. i'd like to complicate this story more by bringing in a regional context. yes, there is internal politics that drives this, there's history that drives it. israel and hamas are dealing with a different regional context as well. hamas had been tolerated by but not really liked by the mubarak government in israel which is in many ways the patron of palestinians in the middle east. the morsi government is more supportive of hamas. they used to be based in damascus, syria. they moved out pretty much just in time as the assad regime begins to crumble there and have found new friend in the region as they distance themselves from syria. israel is finding a region in which it has fewer friend and hamas is in a region in which i
but achieves our common goal of balancing a budget. something bill clinton and newt gingrich did in the mid-90s. shannon: are you against closing loop holes? >> i'm in favor of new revenues through economic growth. if you grow the economy at 4% a year, that 4% a year over 2% a year over a decade raises $5 trillion in more revenue. not a tax increase. but revenue through growth. why would you raise taxes when you could debt $5 trillion by cutting marginal tax rates and getting rid of some of the overregulation that obama is threatening the economy with and having more economic growth and more people pat work? that's the better way to raise revenue. it's disingenuous to say both parties have failed. the republicans in the house passed the ryan plan which fundamentally reformed entitlements. it needs the senate and the president to go along with it. but the republicans passed a real budget in writing in legislative form not some essay about what they think might be done which is all the president has done. shannon: paul ryan did win his house seat so he will be back there with the budget committee
'm going to finish. the i'm going to finish. under bill clinton we raised taxes on rich people. saw the biggest economic boom in american history. under george bush we lowered taxes on rich people go into economic ruin. >> this is problem with people with no connection. >> i'm going to i'm going to finish i'm going to finish. so there is not, based on our own experience a direct connection between raising rates and on wealthy people and economy going, going down. in fact the opposite happened. and so you can keep saying it doesn't make it true. rick: go ahead, pete. >> simon you have no experience in the private sector. never run a is business. that is problem when you have policy wonks. >> i run a business, 16 years. nice try, pete. >> solution for america. small businesses are answer here. president has a great opportunity to lead. >> i've been running a small business for 16 years. pete. rick: not everything was decided last tuesday. not everything was settled. we'll continue the conversation. simon and pete, we'll have you back again soon. >> thank you. >> sure. jenna: put your
% to 39.6%, which it was during the bill clinton administration. will the democrats -- and you know the democrats in the house and the senate and the president go along with these serious cuts in spending in entitlements, for example, medicare, social security, medicaid, all those spending cuts that the democrats usually hate. >> first of all, i want to tell my friend, dana, i believe the democrats have a mandate. we don't have to sit around for the next two years and listen to the republicans whine and complain about tax cuts going up. president obama extended the bush tax cuts for two years. he's put forward a grand bargain. republicans reject that had. the democrats defeated 16 republican incumbents last week. i think the house democrats will be in a position to work with mr. boehner to try to get the votes. mr. boehner has never been able to deliver the votes without ms. pelosi and the democrats delivering those votes. i think the democratic position is to come up with a fair and balanced proposal to not raise taxes on the middle class and to not sit back and listen to the repub
. that is pretty evil. >> i don't think that happened under reagan or under bill clinton. marginal tax rate increase that democrats are looking for will do nothing more than help support the majority of middle class americans that not only support increases on, increase in tax rates on people who are earning over $250,000 but also support not cutting things like social security and medicare and medicaid. and so i think the democrats come in not feeling very, very, rather feeling very strong around this idea that they can create the right compromise and right balance to move this country forward. rick: terry, bill kristol, the prominent conservative, spent last couple days on this network talking about how republicans may want to go along with the president's plan to raise tax rates on those earners above 250,000. take a listen. i'll get your response. this is last night an "special report". >> the first takes rates expire on december 31st. rates are going up for everyone if nothing happens. if you think republicans can win a showdown preserving all the current tax rates against a president
cliff. martha: doug schoen, former pollster to president bill clinton. monica crowley, radio talk show host. both are fox news contributors and what i'm hearing through both of those quotes we're pretty much where we were the last time that the president and john boehner got together. that republicans are going to refuse to go along with any tax increases until, really because they want to see it done slightly different way which we can get into. the president says, that he won't budge either, monica. >> yes. what goes around and comes around and here we are exactly the same spot, martha, as you just said. there are two sacred principle at play for the republicans not raising taxes and cutting spending. focus seems to be because president and democrats do have control over this narrative only thing that seems to be at the conversation here, what we're talking about is, the tax issue, revenue versus rates. but i also think that the republicans really need to focus on cutting spending. that is the other part of this equation that is, just as important if not more important, martha becaus

, hillary clinton has confirmed she's going to leave. as bill plante reports, republicans already are objecting to her potential replacement. bill, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah. that's exactly right. cbs news has learned that the president is likely to nominate susan rice, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations, to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. white house sources say the president feels that he should be able to choose the cabinet members he wants, and they say that rice has done a good job on iran and north korea. but rice was the public face of the administration's initial response to the attacks in benghazi, libya, saying that they were prompted by spontaneous protests, not terrorism, and she's come under fire from republicans. when asked about the possibility of rice as secretary of state, senator lindsey graham had this to say on "face the nation." >> i'm not entertaining promoting anybody that i think was involved with the benghazi debacle. we need to get to the bottom of it. the president has a lot of leeway with me and others when it
